I have strong opinions against this, at least for ports with an active
maintainer. I really see these deprecation campaigns as treading on
somebody's toes.

I really like linimon's periodic emails "FreeBSD ports that you maintain
which are currently marked broken", which I see as a reminder that there
are ports of mine that require action, but going further than that and
deprecate a port that I maintain without even informing me in an
official way is not what I consider collaboration.

Even more so because I don't see any advantage in moving a port from
BROKEN to DEPRECATED state. If a user has a working version of the port
installed, he will stick to that, otherwise, installation will be frown
upon anyway.

I and bapt have already exchanged opinions on this subject more than
once, and I would now like to see what other people (other maintainers
in particular) think about it.

Can we please stop this?
